Description / QLF Dry Cow 20 + Mag

QLF Dry Cow 20 + Mag offers a simple and convenient means to supply magnesium to dry cows whilst stimulating forage dry matter intake through highly palatable 6 carbon sugars. QLF’s magnesium liquids use Magnesium Chloride which is the most bio available form of magnesium for the animal, and when combined with sugar, increases the absorption of magnesium across the gut wall. QLF Dry Cow 20 + Mag contains a general purpose cattle mineral and 20% protein as fed. QLF Dry Cow 20 + Mag is suitable for suckler cows and lower yielding dairy herds.

The vitamin and mineral pack includes magnesium to reduce the risk of Milk Fever by helping the ability of the cow to regulate Calcium blood concentrations.

QLF Dry Cow products are effective by:

  • Increasing ration palatability and intake, thus the cow actually eats the required kilograms of straw or high fibre forage.
  • Improving fibre digestibility, making better use of the diet the cow has eaten.
  • Reducing ration separation and ration sorting.
  • Distributing nutrients and additives (minerals) uniformly.
